Summer in Jackson Hole

Jackson Hole, in summer, with its gorgeous wildflowers, warm, bright days and cool nights, is perfect for nature enthusiasts, active travelers and families looking for a low-key alternative to Aspen and Park City. The charmingly understated town of Jackson has recently upped the ante with more flight routes, an extensive network of bike paths and some exciting new properties, giving travelers all the more reason to soak up the Wyoming sun this June, July and August.

Where to Stay

Jackson is known for its superb hotels, among them luxury legends Four Seasons and Amangani, but two cool new entries have emerged as trendy competitors: the Anvil, a motel turned hip retreat (imagine an Ace Hotel in the Wild West) and the members-only Caldera House, a collection of alpine-style condominiums.

Where to Eat

Jackson Hole has plenty of options to satisfy the appetites of hungry hikers and serious foodies alike. Tried-and-true favorites include the homey Il Villaggio Osteria and rustic Snake River Grill, and the local favorite, Old Yellowstone Garage, reopened this year at Caldera House after a 10-year hiatus. This slope-side eatery with a wood-fired oven and elevated comfort food is sure to be a year-round hot spot. Another buzzed-about newcomer is Glorietta Restaurant at the Anvil hotel, a handsome wood-paneled trattoria, where Italian classics like cacio e pepe, eggplant parmesan and grilled artichokes are complemented by craft cocktails. For an après-hike glass of vino (or two), Bar Enoteca opened in 2017 and serves up a delicious menu of Italian bites, including bruschetta and charcuterie.

What to Do

Jackson Hole is part of Wyoming’s national park system so there’s no shortage of outdoor activities, from white-water rafting and fly-fishing to hiking, horseback riding and mountain biking through the region’s majestic landscapes. Via Ferrata (“the iron way”) is a favorite climbing route, and in 2017 guided hikes were added, including one for adrenaline junkies that extends 500 vertical feet. Less of a thrill seeker? Take the aerial tram down the mountain for sublime views. To enjoy more postcard-perfect scenery, visitors can charter a boat across Jenny Lake for a gorgeous sunset cocktail cruise.

Quotable

In the summer, I would recommend being in Jackson on a Wednesday, since that’s when they have a rodeo.
